Don't pass up the chance to eat at Alessa or sister restaurants in Newport Beach - Pirozzi and Cucina Alessa! This is a FOODIE paradise. Every menu item is multi-layer tasty... (I'm drooling as I write this). I recommend order some of the main menu items as entrees - so you can enjoy more than one since it is so... More
This restaurant, located on Forest, is the sister to Mare on PCH. It is open all day. Parking is tough, but worth the effort. The restaurant is superb for each and every item on the menu. My favorite is the meatball: so flavorful, and one is plenty for lunch. The staff is very helpful, the patrons friendly. We love Alessa.
If a restaurant headlines the name of the chef---and offers what it calls house-made pastas---then they are setting the table for you to be impressed. And we were. By how awful it was.

Alessa and Mare are sister restaurants in town. Mare restricts their menu in the winter, but Alessa keeps the same. Which is why in the winter our friends migrate to the downtown store.

The pasta is fabulous and homemade and the pizza is outstanding. So many pastas to choose from. Go with the oriacetto with homemade sausage or the seafood lemon cello or the lamb parapdelle. Fabulous.
After a visit to the Hugo Rivera Gallery in Laguna Beach, my wife and I stopped by Alessa by Pirozzi for a late lunch. Nice Italian restaurant just half a block off Pacific Coast Highway. The service was good and we ordered Panini and Eggplant Parmigiana. Great Place...Plan to come back for either the Lamb Salad or the Veal Osso-Buco.
Taken there by friends who frequent the restaurant often. Service, quality of food and wine selection all excellent. Pizza is light, ingredients fresh, crispy light crust and delicious topping choices. We ordered the mushroom pizza and it was excellent. Fresh pastas are all excellent. I ordered the Squid Ink linguine with seafood and it was light, fresh and flavorful. My... More
My boyfriend and I had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The proprietor greeted us at the door, which belied the service we were about to get. While our waiter was warm and friendly, we felt a bit ignored during the course of our meal. It's worth saying, though, that the food is fantastic -- the meatballs,... More
